    Drug Treatment and Alcohol Rehab Leader

    The Center for Network Therapy (CNT) is America’ number one drug treatment and alcohol rehab program. CNT provides contemporary, evidence-based, outpatient addiction treatment that delivers far better outcomes relative to conventional treatment for substance use disorders. CNT is in-network with all private health insurance plans and offers Ambulatory or Outpatient Detoxification & Withdrawal Management, Partial Care and Intensive Outpatient, or IOP. CNT has 3 detox centers in New Jersey: Freehold, Middlesex and West Orange.

    Science has proved addiction a chronic disease, based on the lasting changes it causes in the brain, and CNT was the first program to adapt addiction treatment to fit the “disease model” by moving all levels of care, including detoxification and withdrawal management, to an outpatient setting. CNT was also the first to be licensed to provide Ambulatory, or Outpatient Detoxification in New Jersey and offers withdrawal management from alcohol, anesthetics, benzodiazepines, and opiates. Most addiction treatment programs still stick to inpatient detoxification, as they view addiction as a behavioral issue and, unwittingly, perpetuate stigma attached to the disease.

    A study by CNT showed that Ambulatory, or Outpatient Detoxification delivered higher sobriety rates, 90 days out, relative to outmoded inpatient detoxification. Better outcomes among both, men and women were driven by integration of the living environment into treatment, individualized medication protocols and longer length of stay. For women, effectively addressing trauma they experienced in the past delivered greater success.

    Ambulatory Detoxification and Outpatient Withdrawal Management also reduce stigma associated with addiction, as the patient accesses treatment while living in the community. CNT utilizes the latest, evidence-based therapeutic approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, or CBT, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, or DBT, and Motivational Interviewing, or MI in conjunction with Medication Assisted Treatment, or MAT. Psychiatrist(s) at CNT address co-occurring psychological issues.

    CNT is in-networkwith all major private health insurance providers. Therefore the patient benefits from the lowest possible out-of-pocket costs, such as co-pays and deductibles. Being in-network also means that CNT’s programs are credentialed by health insurance providers and CNT can treat withdrawal symptoms immediately, without waiting for authorization.

    CNT’s Medical Director, Indra Cidambi, M.D., is recognized as the leading addiction treatment expert in America. She innovated to the Outpatient, or Ambulatory Detoxification level of care and proved it to be safe and effective. ASAM (American Society of Addiction Medicine) has recognized Dr. Cidambi for advancing treatment for addiction. Dr. Cidambi’s views are highly sought after by media outlets: NPR, New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Huffington Post, NJ 101.5, “O” Magazine, NJ News 12, CBS, Fox News, Thrive Global, NJTV and others.

    There are myriad benefits to accessing detox from home. Firstly, it is important to remember that CNT offers ambulatory or outpatient detox in NJ at 3 locations and provides detoxification from alcohol, benzodiazepines such as Klonopin, Ativan and Xanax, opiates such as fentanyl, heroin, opioid pain pills, and Percocet, anesthetics such as ketamine, amphetamines such as Adderall and Dexedrine and kratom.

    Secondly, ambulatory or outpatient detox treats addiction as the disease it is, and not as a behavioral problem that punishes the person suffering from a substance use disorder by removing him/her from the home environment and sending him/her to inpatient treatment.

    Thirdly, treatment outcomes are better than inpatient. It may seem illogical at first to buy into this claim. However, think about this! No matter how long the treatment is provided in an inpatient setting, eventually the patient has to come home and adjust to his/her living situation, deal with daily stressors and cope with triggers in order to stay sober. With outpatient detox it starts on day one, and it is not as difficult as one would imagine because patients are administered supportive medication that serves to mitigate their cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Also, therapy provided during detox allows patients to process stressors in their home environment, learn coping skills to deal with them and apply learnt skills real time in their home environment. If those skills do not work for them they are able to come back to treatment the next day and work with their therapist to modify their techniques.

    Fourth, and probably the most important reason, is stigma. Addiction is a disease, but it brings with it the stigma of a crime! Similar to being locked away for committing a crime, an individual with addiction is locked up (although voluntarily is most cases) for a period of time. As inpatient treatment was the only option for detoxification until a short while back, addiction became stigmatized, as there was a perceived need to remove the individual suffering from a substance use disorder from the community. Outpatient addiction treatment serves to normalize addiction to a disease and reduce stigma associated with it. Also, patients can continue their normal lives at home everyday after treatment. The ability to be available for their families when the kids come home from school reduces barriers to treatment for women.

    Brian G.
    Had a very good experience at the rehab center. Very good, professional staff and caring atmosphere. The groups were very educational, insightful, and helpful to my recovery. The level of personal care for each individual at CNT sets them aside from other facilities and programs. It helped me to change my life in a positive way.
    quote
    Daniel H.
    CNT is my first detox/PHP treatment. My experience here has been very pleasant thus far. The environment is structured, yet relaxed. Everyone participates as they become comfortable to share their stories, as they are very personal. CNT offered free walk-in support for Thanksgiving, which can keep patients away from trigger situations.

    My experience here has been wonderful. I’ve learned a lot and got to open up and figure myself out. i’ve learnt how to act in certain situations, and keep myself calm when I am super stressed out. I like it here at the cnter, everyone is welcoming, everyone is really helpful and there for you whenever you’re upset, mad or just need someone to talk to.
